One Win Away

A 7-4 win against Texas last night helped the IceHogs gain critical points in the Central Division and set them up for a potential series win. With just one regular season contest remaining between the Hogs and Stars, a win today would clinch the series for the IceHogs.
Production All Around

Forward Mike Hardman led the way with two goals and an assist while forward Brett Connolly tallied once and had two assists. Defenseman Ian Mitchell and forward Carson Gicewicz both picked up two assists as well.
